Memories should last a lifetime.

We're tackling

and challenging stigma.


Join us in our efforts to support our dementia community.

Over 100,000 kiwis will be affected by dementia by 2030.

New Zealand is unprepared for the next wave of dementia diagnoses that will see an increase to 170,000 by 2050 due to our ageing population.


September is World Alzheimer’s Month. This was launched in 2012 as part of an international campaign to raise awareness of dementia and challenge the stigma that surrounds it.  This is our opportunity to start changing the conversation, and you can help.

Get involved


Supporting us means supporting thousands of Kiwis affected by dementia.


Dementia doesn't care what alert level we're at. Please keep doing what you're doing.


Register as a volunteer, help us when we move back to level one.


Together we can raise awareness and ensure that communities have the support and guidance they need.

Signs and symptoms

As people age,  changes in strength, stamina, endurance and physical robustness are expected. So when does normal decline become a concern?
